A Secret to remember

A Secret to remember

Hazy clouds keep secrets
of a deep sacred love,

Rain spills them
onto the drought 
of a beseeching
floor, 

letting go of the 
excruciating 
phantasms 
bestowed 
thereon..

The sun burns
aeon in her own 
forlorn fire,

for a marred moon 
woefully seeking 
to hide,

Don’t you know? 

Her existence that 
illuminates this 
dim world, 

can vanish in 
a single square 
of shadow, 

Don’t you see? 

The way she bows 
for the increasing 
blackness after 
twilight, 

Giving a vow of 
duality as ransom 
for an endless 
plight, 

Most rules are 
taken for 
granted, 

like the belief in 
an obscurely 
pledged 
recur, 

faith that
the sun shall 
rise again, 

But who told you
a tomorrow would
occur? 

Some romanticise
the moon, 

its infinitely
concealed light, 

But never do they hear
his pining whispers 
in the solitude 
of a barren
night, 

Why not understand
why he stands alone
between a million 
glowing stars?

Why not unfold the 
secrets he’s 
revealing,

the gruesome 
story behind
his scars?

Between these
glimmering pearls
of luminosity,

each one
full of glee,

Moon’s immortal beauty
will be the only divinity 
prodigious to see, 

He hides and shies, 

Cries,
when every dawn
for his sun 
he dies, 

Never did
he realise..

he’s the most
complete,

For the beauty 
of his lunar
fruition, 

comes after he
accumulates
his wounds 
again, 

The depth of his 
unconditional
love, 

thrives when he 
gives in to the
burning daze
of his sun, 

whilst the devotion 
of her love shines
when she sees
him in her
light, 

Someday you’ll see
them together in 
the same sky, 

lonely and
far away,

forsaking  
their love to 
give others 
life, 

Who is the world
to see their
sacrifice?   

And you,
don’t you realise? 

You’re only alive when 
petals of love drip 
from the corner
of your eyes, 

then why run from 
its arrows?

Why break them off?

Oh you unaware one, listen.. 

The drop of moon’s tear
overpowers a thousand 
drops of rain,

The rumble of sun’s storm
screams louder than 
the agony of 
your pain, 

Then why fear? 

When all that’s here..

exist inherently
for you?

Mardjan I found myself there in a trance reading the first two lines over and over listening to the beautifull song you added 👌perfect touch 

“ your only alive when peddles of love drip from the corner of your eyes”

Wow Silent Dreamer!  I like how you think...You make me look at the moon and nature, and creation in such a sentimental light.....How we are privileged to have such beauty around us that was created FOR us!  I love how you personified the moon and it makes me think of it in a whole new light!  Such secrets the universe holds!  This was beautiful!  Had to pin it....Great work! xo ;)
